surfisup1000: Sky are a monopoly. There is no need to do anything to the epg.

One thing annoys me -- I set series record, but it records the repeat screenings too. So , I end up with duplicate recordings. Why can't sky set this so it just records the programs in the selected sequence. That is the beauty of recording, you don't need the repeat episodes.

I've found this too, having recently changed to a My SKY after many very happy years with a TiVo. The my SKY gui and epg are a bit weak in comparison. I am learning the shortcuts and how to reorder the list of recordings, but it still seems pretty basic. A HD update would be nice as the whole GUI is a bit clunky on the new 60 inch.

I find that Netflix plays my episodes in order quite nicely! :-)

The sky EPG is now around 7 years old and needs an update. I am hoping that the isky integration will bring a new GUI but am not holding my breath.... Fingers crossed though.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

To be fair, the fact Sky UK were rolling out on demand via internet services - it was this that triggered the new EPG to be launched too - as others have said - fingers crossed the same logic applies to Sky NZ....

I don't want no sugar in it - thank you very much
